Doves, Cobalt Blue & The Language of Flowers for Adele & Nicholas' Wedding at St John the Evangelist Church Lund & Bartle Hall
These two had such a clear brief, it really was huge pleasure to make it a reality, it involved lots of beautiful colour and Doves which were an integral part of their beautiful mood board. The dove is often used as a symbol for high admiration, the true value of unconditional love, it represents, grace, devotion, hopefulness, divinity and promise as do many of the flowers we used throughout all of the designs, each flower had special significance, we chose each one carefully taking into account the colour combination and symbolism
Our Josie had the great pleasure of presenting the lovely Adele with her Bridal Bouquet
This fabulous Bridal Bouquet contained a collection of truly meaningful and symbolic blooms:
The beautiful Phalaenopsis Orchid in the centre of Adele's bouquet is a symbol of Love, Delphinium represents infinite possibility, Snap Dragons mean Graciousness and Strength, Roses are an expression of deep emotion and true love, Freesia means perseverance and friendship, Daisies represent patience, innocence and purity, whilst Nerines meaning Allusion were used in secret love messages in the 18th century, Nigella were also included meaning 'Love in the Mist' symbolising a chain that binds lovers together, Peonies depict good fortune and a happy marriage
The Bridesmaids Bouquet toned with the cobalt blue gown and included a plethora of vibrant colour
Inside Lund Church the pews were dressed with posies of fresh sweet scented blooms tied to the end of each alternate pew lining the aisle
Just a head of the altar two simple designs framed the ceremony space
The Bride Groom's Symbolic Boutonniere included... A Rose an expression of deep emotion and true love, deep red/orange fiery Freesia means perseverance and friendship, Daisies represent patience, innocence and purity, 'Love in the Mist' symbolising a chain that binds lovers together was snuggled into the pale blue Hydrangea meaning heartfelt gratitude

The sunflower's petals have been likened to bright yellow rays of sunshine, which evoke feelings of warmth and happiness. In addition, the sunflower is often associated with adoration and longevity.
